Tara Fallaux at UNBOUND during UNSEEN

Tara Fallaux, Almost There 2023 | Installation view


Tara Fallaux, Almost There (film still), 2023. Multimedia installation | Film, photography, soundscape | Loop | 2,5 x 4 m

With her film installation ALMOST THERE Tara Fallaux investigates the interaction between 2- and 3dimensional realms, merging a cinematic analogue special effect from early 1900 theatre and visuals inspired by early cinema in newly created backgrounds. In her experiment the old optical illusion is transported to the present, using photography, film, photo backgrounds and a mirror. A key aspect is the integration of a filmed floating female body. Placed within the centuries old theatrical contraption the floating body suggests a hologram. But in fact it is a reflective illusion; the ungraspable of the seemingly concrete. In this case the juxtaposition between a moving ephemeral body and the still environment in which it is projected.
